Most likely, cloned radios are consuming valuable airtime on your two-way communications network. Days and weeks may be spent tracking down the source.
SAM — Subscriber Access Manager, formerly known as CloneWatch — is a powerful add-on tool to Genesis’ industry-standard performance management solutions GenWatch3® (for ASTRO 25, Dimetra and 3600 networks) and GW3-TRBO® (for MOTOTRBO™). It identifies and helps eliminate the threat of cloned radios.
SAM monitors resources (groups and radios) for suspicious activity. A suspect is a resource (radio ID or group) that breaks a predefined rule or expected behavior. Suspect resources are added to a list where the suspect’s activities are then displayed and recorded in detail.
When an activity (e.g. PTT, affiliation, etc.) is received on a group or radio ID — also known as resources — this activity is validated against the Resource Ranges defined within the SAM interface. If the activity of the resource violates the expected activity definitions, the resource is added to the Suspect List. Once in the Suspect List, the resource’s activity is closely monitored and detailed in the SAM database.
SAM listens to incoming data from the Control Channel (3600), CAI or ATIA for user established parameters. SAM alerts the user in the event system violations, such as:
As a comprehensive radio accountability solution, SAM covers the bases:
